Onnnsltlnn ir (hn rflftrncn of the Anglo-Irish Treaty to the Irlsn electorate) was voiced bv Cleorge Gavan Duffy, one of its negotiators, In his argument for ratification de livered in this morning's session of tho Dall Kircann. He declared he opposed this course because of the high iocllng a plebis cite campaign would create. Such a campaign, he asserted, would rend the country from one end to tho other. He.cald he saw no alternative) to the treaty and spoke ajs If hu were cnnf dcotly expecting its ratification by tho Dail. -Tho .embers of tho Dial listened with intense interest while he and Eamon J. Duggan, also a member of tho London delegation, ardently rec ommomled ratification of the treaty. Mr. Duffy declared, he recommended ratification reluctantly, because, he argued, that thu signatures of tho Irish delegates had been forced under duress. Mr. Duggan, on the other hand, warmly denied ho had been coerced into affixing his signature, declaring: "If the Irish people cannot achieve freedom under this treaty, it will be the fault of the people and not of the treaty." Ho declared the treaty represented tho fruits of tho sacrifices of all -who bad died for Ireland. "Every man and woman here," he continued, "is enntiea to go oui ana die for Ireland. But none is entitled to cend the Irish people to death." DE VALERA EXPLAINS OATH HE PROPOSED. Eamon De Valera took occasion to refer to what was printed In tho morning newspapers as his alterna tive oath. "That oath," ho said, "was aug rested by me 4n a verbal suggestion when I wan criticising, not tho oath In the treaty, but another oath pre viously suggested. I said the first oath was InconeiMent with our posi tion and I verbally indicated -what we might take Instead. 'The word 'constitution' occurs In both oaths, but In one of thorn It re fer to a constitution In vrhloh thero was sot i vestige of British authority. 'The other oath Is one In which the British King must be recognized as the head of the Irish State." The Dall adjourned at 1.35 P. M. un til 1.30 o'clock. The members of tho Dall, Instead of congregating In the lobbies before the morning session, went promptly into the council room upon ineir arrival, at the behest of tho Sergeant at Arms, and the day's proceedings started only four minutes aftor tho House eat, instead of being delayed a halt hour or so, as has been the case.

Incidental to a discussion ojjt the city's traffic problems beforT thi Finance and Budget Committee of tiu Board of Estimate to-day, Spcc:a; Deputy Commissioner of Police Hir ri8s in charge of "raffle regulation told the Mayor he was working out a plan for ending the congestion of thi streets duo to parking cars by "8 tnbllshlng two great underground paruing apaccs or garas, one und?i' th south end of Central Tark to ac commodate 30,000 cars and one under Bryant Park to accommodate 4,000 or 5,000 enra. Dr. Harriss said ho had gone far enough into the study of tho plan tn bn sure that space under tho parks 'ould be found which would clear the shopping, theotro and hotel districts of idlo cars and would enable ownern to bo constantly in touch with thorn through telephone connec'lon or other signal. He had not yet considered costs, he said, or the charge which -would be made to the automobile! owner for the privilege. Tho plan will "peiato to protect cars from theft. Dr. Harriss said. "There Is available a perfect spot near the 55th Street entrance of Cen tral Park," said Dr. Harris. "It will not interfere with park traffic at all, and will not be vislblo and unsightly. "These parked cars to-day cause congestion, loss of life, injurlos. Our plan provides that when a passenger leaves his car to enter a store or theatre for a space of tlmo. the car shall bo In tho 'tunnel' subject to telephone call and a flash. It will probably mean six telephone opera tors in tho 'tunnel,' but practically all of the large department stores who havo been studying Uhe proposition and are enthuslastia about It, aro willing to have Individual operators to handle their own store calls. Hotels and theatres will undoubtedly fall in line." The Mayor called for a statistical report on cars parked at all hours of the day, including those on hack stands. The committee granted a request from Dr. Harriss for $250,000 to ex tend the tower system of trafflo regu lation which was first tried out at his own expense on Fifth Avenue. The extended yxwer sysUnn will op erate on Broadway, from 84th to 110th Streets; Varick Street and Seventh Avenue, from Franklin Street to 69th Street; Fourth Avenue and Park Avo nue, from Eighth Street to 86th Street; Lafayette Street, from Duane to Eighth Streets; lth Street, from liver to river; 41d Street, entire length; Grand Concourse, 161st St rent to Fordham Road, and in Brooklyn, Bedford Avenue, from Roobllng Street to Eastern Parkway.
